This was my final patternmaking (DS 253 Fall 2009) project (and what I made instead of a third piece for my collection in Apparel Structures II). Basically, this is my first design that I made from start to finish, from sketch to muslin (okay multiple muslins), to paper pattern, to fashion fabric. (Photos by Mom)
If I had all the time in the world, I would make this jacket in a bunch of different materials/colors. (leather, wool, fur…I want a winter version- wouldn’t a faux fur collar be so cozy?) And make a man-version for Zach (see below).
From left to right: Original sketch, work in progress, the messy studio from everyone pulling all-nighters to finish projects, and my wonderfully enthusiastic and supportive friend Zach modeling my jacket.
